The city issued a permit Oct. 5 for contractor VCC LLC to turn the closed Staples store in St. Johns Town Center into shell space for later tenant build-out for a Marshalls off-price retail store.
VCC, of Little Rock, Arkansas, will clear out the store and prepare it for tenant work at a cost of $526,837.
Staples closed the office supplies and services store as of July 23.

Fox Design Group LLC of Solon, Ohio, is the agent.
